• {DIY} Washi Eggs + Easter Egg Centerpiece

    I’ve got another fun DIY for you today from Mariana from So Much Life.  She’s sharing a fun washi tape Easter egg project with us today with a bonus project of making your washi eggs into a cute table centerpiece.  The first project is perfect for those of you with little ones too – a no mess way to decorate eggs.  Enjoy!

    What you’ll need for both projects:  washi tape, hardboiled eggs, egg carton box, ribbon of choice, skewers, hot glue gun, acrylic paint & paint brush
    Project 1:
    Step 1: Paint the half egg carton box and let it dry.
    Step 2: While the paint dries, coat the eggs one by one with washi tape, and give it a patchwork look.
    Step 3: Arrange the eggs in the painted box.
    Project 2:
    Step 1: Place a dash of hot glue on the tip of the stick and carefully enter the egg. Pour more hot glue around the egg just to fix it (with polystyrene eggs, do not use hot glue, just insert the stick into the egg).
    Step 2: Coat the eggs with washi tape pieces until it is fully covered.
    Step 3: Tie a ribbon at the end of the egg (where the stick starts) and tie a little bow on it!

    Aren’t those so cute? I’m really loving the washi egg idea, and you could do it on plastic eggs or hardboiled (or even foam ones). If you do it on plastic eggs you could decorate each half seperately so you can still put goodies inside for the little ones.

    Here’s a little roundup of other ways I love to decorate eggs for Easter:

    What’s your favorite way to decorate eggs?  Charlie and I will be coloring them the old fashioned way, although this tip makes it much easier for little hands.  Happy decorating!

      what a brilliant idea – I LOVE WASHI TAPE. It’s awesome how it looks like patchwork on the eggs – so pretty.

    •  Came home to the best surprise ever (my favorite pizza ever) courtesy of the best momma ever. In a couple days it will be 10 years since I moved from Chicago to LA and in all of that time I have never ordered one of these to be shipped to me, even though I wanted to a million times. And I haven't been to Chicago for 3 years (which is way too long to be apart!) so I'm really really excited to dig in to this beauty. Where my Giordannos lovers at?
       Caught a glimpse of my reflection today and I was like "whoa, that can't be me." But it is. #37weeks (almost 38). No hiding this Waldo.
